debate with obama and romney, for obama to bring up these issues, because jim laher didn't mention those issues. now they're going to try to bring it up in the next presidential debate. the question, though, is how specific is the attack? when it's biden tomorrow night, when it's obama against romney. are they pointing out, okay, this is what you have said about a human life amendment, this is what you've said about planned parenthood, this is the legislation that paul ryan has proposed. get as specific as you can and pin him down on those specific questions, as opposed to making a more general assertion about he would have an extreme view on abortion. because the one thing romney's really good at, saw this last week in the debate and saw this in massachusetts ten years ago, his platform might say, two plus two equals five, he might have said two plus two equals five to get the party's nomination, but in the general election debate, he's going to say, i don't what you're talking about, i've always said two plus two equals four. and he can be compelling. >> steve kornacki, senior writer f

likely voters show romney did get a boost after the debate. and he's taking advantage of it. >> we can't afford another series of budget deficits of roughly $1 trillion a year. recognize, this is not just bad for the economy. it's bad for jobs. >> reporter: brandi hitt, abc news, danville, kentucky. >>> abc news is proud to play a special role in tonight's debate. abc's chief foreign affairs correspondent, martha raddatz, will serve as moderator. she checked out the stage in danville yesterday. we wish her good luck. >>> the main event tonight, beginning at 9:00 p.m. eastern. join diane sawyer and george stephanopoulos, and our team for live coverage and analysis. >>> the romney campaign has agreed to stop mentioning the name of a navy s.e.a.l. killed in the consulate attack after his mother complained. romney had been telling voters of sharing a christmas dinner with the former s.e.a.l., glen dougherty, two or three years ago. but his mother called on romney to stop making his death, her words, part of his political agenda. >>> last month, the embassy attack in libya that killed four

's strong showing by mitt romney in the presidential debate, ryan is looking to continue that momentum. ron mott reports. >> reporter: after one final cram debate session in florida, paul ryan emerged wednesday sporting a sweet tooth. and an appetite for a fight with the vice president. he even flexed his muscles for "time" magazine. a photo shoot from last year headed back to newsstands. >> he's one of the most extreme debaters we have in politics but the achilles' heel he has is president obama's record. >> he walked into a rock star welcome in kentucky in kentucky. his opponent, vice president, joe biden, is scheduled to arrive later today having prepped by battle by consuming all things ryan. his speeches, his budget, his book. >> i just want to make sure that when i say these things that i don't have the congressman say, no, i don't have that position or that's not the governor's position. >> reporter: many expect tonight's debate to feature the fireworks largely absent last week in denver. ryan says he's ready for mr. biden to come at him "like a cannon ball" in an effort to even the
on following mitt romney's powerful debate. many polls suggest the first presidential debate wiped out much of the lead held by president obama. >> one thing i will be looking for is whether or not joe biden is going to address the contrast between the barack obama that he described, in his convention speech, and the barack obama we saw in the stage in denver last week. that is one think this i will be watching for. can biden repair obama's image? >> reporter: congressman paul ryan arrived in the blue grass state yesterday. many say the 42-year-old wisconsin congressman will rely on the extensive knowledge of the federal budget and the economy in tonight's debate. >> a couple of weeks ago, thought it was -- obama's lead was lengthening, but now it's narrowed quite a bit. i would like to hear them engage in some substantive issues, and i look forward to hearing ryan's budget plans. >>> craig bosswell live in danville, kentucky, joining us live. a lot of analysis floating around on this one. with regard to biden, smart folks are saying he has to make up for his boss's tumble during the debate
. among that small sliver of people, they all favored romney for those that say debates mattered. >> this is what we've been saying throughout the campaign. this electorate who picked sides early, the undecided has been low, those firmly committed to a candidate has been very high. and then you come to the debates, as lob sidpsided as it 97% tell us they already made up their minds. you're talking about single digits having picked sides as a result of the debate, and romney got the advantage there. we see a slight closing of the numbers in these three critical states, but nothing to change -- to alter the fundamental chemistry of this race. you still have a close race. it looks a little bit like it did, as you say, before the conventions, slight edge to obama, particularly in ohio. but very close. >> i want to look at his job approval rating, if you will. among likely voters and among registered voters. among likely voters, we have a screen up here. post-debate, it's approval ratings. florida at 48, virginia at 48, ohio 49. in ohio, the numbers was 47. it does seem as if the like

. mitt romney showed up for a debate. i think the next time you see president obama, he'll come ready for a debate. >> here is he on the tom joyner radio show. he said he was too polite in last week's debate. let's listen to the president. >> i mean, you know, the debate, i think it's fair to say, i was just too polite. because, you know, it's hard to keep on saying what you're saying isn't true. it gets repetitive. the good news is, that's just the first one. >> is that the number one job of the president, to be the fact-checker, or is what you've done the last four years? positive or negative, which way should you go to win the next debate when he gets in there? >> well, you can be positive while being negative, which -- or be negative while being positive. the president's problem wasn't that he was too polite. the president's problem was he didn't come with a strong narrative frame, both for defending his own accomplishments and own record, give us an idea of where we're going in the next term and holding mitt romney accountable for having 87 positions on every issue. yes, it gets
